Stilettos Leg Workout

18 Nov

Hey Guys!

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. I had one full of 1st birthday parties and catch up’s! I am happy to say I got through a kid’s birthday party without having too much junk food! Just a few party pies (hey it’s an Aussie party tradition to have a party pie!) and just a teeny tiny bit of soda to feel like I wasn’t missing out. I had plenty of green smoothie before and afterwards so I alkalined my body to make up for the acidic food!

We are heading into the season of party’s and drink’s and many people put on weight and eat terribly around this time of year so I hope to bring you lots of tips to support you during this time.

For those that read my FB status last week – I am pimping out my blog with a new design which I am really excited about! I mentioned on FB it would happen last week but we are having a few technical issues. It should be up this week so if you visit often and the site is down for a brief moment – that is the reason!

Considering my blog is called Stilettos and Green Juice I couldn’t help but post this fun stiletto’s workout by Cassey  from Blogilates. Go on and try it – I know you want to! Maybe when no one is watching!

Kettlebell Workout from the Tone It Up Girls!

14 Nov

So often I watch people at the gym swing kettlebells with such bad form that I am sure they are going to throw their back out! You need to be really careful and ensure you’re back is always straight and that you aren’t using a kettle bell that is too heavy for you. I really struggle to keep a straight back so I ensure I always do my kettlebell swings in front of a mirror so that I can watch my form (something I really need to work on!)
If you’re new to kettlebells and have no idea what to then watch this video from the Tone It Up Girls. (love love love them!) You can go to their website for the printable version.

Victoria’s Secret Angel Abs

8 Nov

Have I mentioned that I am totally in love with all things Victoria’s Secret? I get super excited for their annual parade. I love the glitter, the glam, the beautiful bodies and most importantly the angel wings!

I am even more obsessed with angels and would happily walk around every day with angel wings if my friends and family allowed it!

Women usually have two responses to the Victoria’s Secret Parade. They either feel like crap about their bodies and feel depressed, or they are in awe of the women, love the beauty and fun of the  parade and feel inspired to do some sit ups!

I don’t know about you but nothing inspires me more! But please, please remember my post this week about How To FEEL Good Naked. Only a very small percentage of women in this world will look like a Victoria’s Secret Model so all that is important is that you do your best to be as healthy as you can be and choose to love and be kind to yourself.

There are  women who see a beautiful  woman and instinctively try to tear them down and look for their faults so that they feel better about themselves. This is not cool! The only way to really see the beauty in yourself is to see the  beauty in other women. Women should be loving and supporting each other. It’s totally normal to feel a little jealous or down about your body but be aware that this is your ego talking and all things that come from the ego are illusions. The ego’s job is to separate us from love and keep us in fear based thoughts.

For those that want to work on their Victoria’s Secret Model Abs then check out Blogilates Ab workout. I have been doing this workout every day this week and it is a killer! Honestly it’s one of the best ab routines I have done. Also remember that abs are made in the kitchen so it’s vital that you are eating healthy meals and snacks.

Be kind to yourself and see the beauty in everyone.

Lots of light and angel love

What To Do When You've Eaten Crap!

6 Nov

Hello!

Today was one of my favourite days of the year. Melbourne Cup Day! For all those that live outside of Australia (which is more than half of you) Melbourne Cup is “the race that stops the nation” A horse race that is.

Melbourne folks get the day off work and those in Sydney pretty much stop working in the afternoon. It is fabulous! We get dressed up, we drink, eat, more drink (the Aussie’s can sure drink!) and we cheer on our favourite horse! I love the vibe of Melbourne Cup. It’s a lot a whole lot of fun!

My Melbourne Cup Dress – Most girls wear hats or fascinators but I am not much of a hat girl! (I cut my friend out cos I wasn’t sure he wanted to be on my blog!)

On days like this it is almost impossible to stick to clean eating and I sure broke my clean eating ways.  My work provided a lunch for us and I had a terribly greasy and disgusting sausage, a bread roll which I am sure was full of preservatives, half a can of coke and 3 glasses of wine! Eyck!

Sure I should have grabbed a salad before the work lunch but sometimes you just have to indulge and be part of the fun. I will never tell you to eat clean 100% of the time because it’s just not sustainable.

When I staggered home  (I am giggling after 1 wine, so 3 is lethal for a girl like me!) my body craved greens! When you have been eating clean for a while you will love your vegetables and your body will tell you when you need a hit. I ended the day with plenty of vegetables and a double shot of Spirulina.

My point is you don’t need to feel guilty if you have a day like I have had. Enjoy it but make sure you also squeeze in a lot of nutrients before and afterwards. to alkaline your body balance out all that acidic food. You’re body will thankful!

I am off to sweat this junk out of me with a HIIT workout.

Don’t forget…
